Fruit Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 June 1915

BY W. J. ADAMS. Pegging Out the Orchard.-New settlers intending to plant out an orchard this year will naturally want a little informa tion on the subject of pegging out-a very important matter, and one that should be well done if the orchard is to be a thing of beauty and a joy forever. The first thing necessary is a supply of pegs-two for each tree to be planted, about Jin. in diameter and about 9in. long-then three or four small coils of tie wire. Fencing wire is too heavy. There are three well-known systems of planting, all of which have been pre viously described in these columns, but that known as the square svrtem is, in my opinion, preferable. To plant on the square, start at the top end of the piece of land you propose to put down. Allow 22ft. for a headland between the first row of trees and the bank of the ditch, or from the windbreak or fence, as the case may be,. You will, however, be probably working off a ditch, so put the first peg in 22ft. from the bank of the ditch...

GUM POCKETS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 June 1915

J ' GUM POCKETS. The exudation of gum from the wood of trees is a common enough trouble in most orchards. In a recent article the biologist to the Department of AgrictUure indi cated some of the causes, for ^ j all times it is a sign that something is wrong. It is stated definitely that growth and water are both limiting factors, and the condi tions favorable to the development of gummosis are said to be: 1. Growing trees in heavy, retentive, poorly-drained soils. 2. Growing trees in an otherwise suit able soil, but underlaid by an imperme able subsoil, the situation not being such as to afford ample drainage. 3. Irrigation methods allowing an ex cessive accumulation of water around the trees for a period of time. 4. High fertility, combined with soil and drainage conditions, as mentioned un der (1) and (2) and irrigation methods, as mentioned under (3). 5. High fertility and excessive irriga tion . 6. Excessive manuring, especially with nitrogenous fertilisers. 7. Continuous wet we...

Social Features. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 June 1915

Social Features. Education.-Since the capital of a large, district will first of all attract leading edu cational activities, a site of 16.48 acres is given the high terminal point of the com mercial axis opposite the government, where at the outset, anyway, the public high school or academy group may be es tablished to be supplemented by contigu ous parallel private institutions for which flanking situations are reserved. As the centre combining recreation with educational motives, a site for a Public Institute house library, art gal lery, museum, and lecture.' halls is indi cated facing the Government group across the broad water and park from the north west direction. This important edifice might well be allied with an agricultural college, whose experimentation plots oc cupying irrigated land, would have unob structed scope for extension towards the west without necessity for intersection by or interruption with any internal traffic of the city. A more popular and general educat...

The City Plan of Griffith. (Concluded from Last Issue.) [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 June 1915

The City Plan of Griffith. BY WALTER BURLEY GRIFFIN (DESIGNER OF FEDERAL CAPITAL). (Concluded from Last Issue.) [The designer's conception of the city of Griffith as it should appear when completely developed on the lines he has laid down is illustrated t>elow. The following notes may be an aid to the identification of the prominent features of the bird's-eye view now given with the ground, plan, pub lished in last issue. No difficulty will be experienced in tracing the line of the main canal from where it enters the urban area on the east and crosses the Wilbriggie railway just north of the hotel centre (A). The effect which will be produced by its sweeping curve round the central portion of the city and by the two enlargements of the waterway is very apparent. Due north of the hotel centre, the railway station (B) can be readily distinguished, but the line of the railway from Barellan to Griffith is not at all prominent. Further north again, and a little to the east of the rail...

Settlers and the Land Laws. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 June 1915

Settlers and the Land BY L. J. HAGARTY. f The settlers on the Irrigation Areas are, as a body, not as familiar with the requirements of the land laws as settlers throughout the balance of the State hold ing land from the Crown. The majority of the latter class understand fully the conditions under which they hold their lands, and understand, too, that the offi cials administering the law are bound by the law, and have not the power to over look any infringements in this respect. The Land Act lays it down clearly that certain conditions must be carried out, and that 'certain' things must not be done, and the official administering the law must, for his own protection, see that the law is not broken. The law is often called "'a hass," but it can be a dangerous ani mal alike to the man flouting it and the official who connives at its flouting. Of course, on these Areas particularly, it is recognised that the law should be admin istered sympathetically, and the authori ties are imbued w...

PRUNING DEMONSTRATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 June 1915

PRUNING!) EMONSTRATIONS. The Assistant Fruit Expert, Mr. Bryant, visited the Areas recently as arranged,-and gave demonstrations on the following Yanco farms:-W. B. Brock, Farm 24; J. Brady, Farm 267; J. Stackpool, Farm 80; C. W. Ziele, Farm 280; J. Hethering ton, Farm 338; W. P. Brock, Farm 164; Craig Bros., Farm 216; Pryde Bros., Farm 20, Mirrool: E. Gunning, Farm 135. It is regretted that, generally speaking the demonstrations were poorly attended owing to the shortness of the notice given to settlers of the department's arrange ments. It is hoped that on future occa sions of the kind it will be possible to give ample notice through these columns. According to the "Mildura Cultivator," the use of brackish water for irrigating or chards has not had such an ill effect as might have been anticipated. Tender crops, such as tomatoes, have suffered most. Where trees and vines have been well drained they have suffered little, if any, harm, although no doubt the con tinued use of such wa...

Sudan Grass. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 June 1915

Sudan Grass. The notes issued by the Department of Agriculture for the week ended May 8 contains a deal of information on the sub ject of Sudan Grass, which is attracting a great deal of attention in the United States at the present time. Reference to the success achieved at Hay was made in a recent issue of the "Record." The following particulars as to the re sults at Yanco Farm, extracted from the agricultural notes, will no doubt be of general interest: "The report from Yanco for the first season shows that the seed was sown on November 26, 1913; cut on February 24, 1914, yielding about 4 tons green feed per acre; on March 24 new growth about 4ft. high, yielding, perhaps, 3 tons to the acre. "For the quarter-acre plot at Yanco Ex- . periment Farm, the seed was sown in Oc tober, 1914, in drills about 2ft. 6in. apart, at the rate of 121b. per acre. The growth showed, however, that half that quantity of seed would have been sufficient and some isolated plants stooled much more freel...

CRAB-HOLEY LAND. Its Origin. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 June 1915

CRAB-HOLEY LAND. Its Origin. Mr. Inspector McDiarmid forwards the following interesting comments on the origin of "crab-holey" or "puffy" coun try: "From observation and a careful exam ination of this land, I have arrived at a conclusion which apparently eixplains the origin of such formations. The theory is that they are the results of wind storms, and in support of this argument the fol lowing points are advanced: (1) They occur chiefly on the plain, open, unprotected country, and are not noticed immediately eastward of thick limber belts, i.e., the protected side from prevailing winds. (2) Their composition corresponds with the sweepings of the plains which accumu late on dusty days against obstacles. This accounts for the richness of these mounds and their ability to absorb and retain moisture. (3) The "puff' probably commences with some tussock of grass, stick, or salt bush plant, against which leaves, dust, etc., accumulates. This accumulation con tinues for years, and consist...
